Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. I hope you weekend is going as planned. I’ll be at work all day today, but when I get home, we’ll be making homemade pizza in our pizza oven. My husband is making the pizza dough this morning and my daughter will be getting all the toppings cut up and ready for tonight. We love using our pizza oven, it’s the best. The longest part is preparing the pizza to go in with my fresh basil and mozzarella. Once it’s put in the oven, it’s a matter of seconds that it’s done.
Today’s card I used some of the new dies that will be available starting September 1st. These dies are awesome. If you are interested in getting them early, I’d love to talk with you. Here’s my card for today.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Cling Stamp Set along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper and the new Apple Blossoms Dies (available Sept 1) for my card today.
I started by adhering a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a So Saffron card base. I embossed a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock using the Stitched Greenery Dies. I adhered the panel to a So Saffron mat and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the apple image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using my Apple Blossoms Dies, I cut the apple and small flowers from the panel of Basic White, the flower center from a panel of Flirty Flamingo, the leave from a panel of Grany Apple Green and the branch from a panel of Soft Suede cardstock. I adhered the leaves to the branch using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower center to the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers to the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered the branch to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the apple to the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a couple of the flowers to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set on the panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Apple Blossoms Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added Pearl Basic Jewels to the flower centers.
On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the apples on the branch image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, So Saffron and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and then to the inside of the So Saffron card base.
To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the branch with the apple image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The dies I used will be available starting September 1st – September 30th. Don’t wait to get them. They coordinate perfectly with the Apple Harvest stamp set. You will be able to purchase them as a bundle and save 10%. There are 6 new sets coming in September. Happy Stamping!!

We created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalog.
